Herb Infused Dipping Oil

Herb Infused Dipping Oil

Ever tasted those fancy dipping oils at the supermarket and go wohoooo! Well that happened to me but they were so darn overpriced that I just finished the samples and skedaddled.

One day on my morning jaunts to namdhari I found all kinds of fresh herbs and I bought them all on a whim. I got several bunches of fresh basil, thyme, rosemary & oregano with no idea of what I was going to do with them.

I did make a liter of my versatile Italian roast tomato sauce(recipe here) but I still had lots of the herb left.I was also high on my afternoon coffee and energized like a little bunny.

That was when I decided to season my cast iron pan and make herb oil at once! It was so easy that I urge all food lovers to make it!

It makes an amazing side with bread and you can use it to drizzle over pizzas(recipe here),pastas and herb chicken.

    Wow, what a great idea! We just got a TON of rosemary from our CSA so I may try this. So the herbs shouldn’t fry at all in the pain, correct? What a clever idea, thank you for sharing.
